Letter: Benson, This is Norm Benson from Fraser

This is Norm Benson from Fraser
These opinions are mine, but formed over 62 years. The first part is in reply to Liz McIntyre's letter. I am not opposed to legal immigration at all! I am opposed to illegal immigration, and bringing unvetted "refugees" in with no restrictions. My grandparents came here from Europe to escape the class system, and rising socialism that were over taking Europe at the end of the 1800s. I would guess that most people's family have much the same story. But when someone comes here or overstays their permission, they are breaking the law. I do not understand how anyone can misunderstand that. If someone sneaks into your yard, takes your food, and has the gall to ask you to support them, maybe even threatens you or assaults you, you would not put up with that. You would demand that the police take them to jail. This is the same situation we have with Illegal Immigrants. Just by being here, they are breaking the law, they are "Trespassing." They are taking jobs, money, food, and services that should go to bona fide U.S. citizens, and naturalized citizens. Please do not lump all these illegals in with those legal immigrants that played by the rules. There was also a letter against the nominated head of the EPA, Scott Pruitt. The EPA is a total disaster. It is a rogue agency, and needs strong leadership, and Congress need to put the brakes on the EPA hard. I am not calling for the end of the EPA, but the EPA needs to have much more oversight.
